Guests will watch a whole tuna cutting demonstration at the Grand Opening. A skilled chef will break down a tuna into traditional sushi blocks. A sushi chef will then prepare sushi to be served to the guests joining the party. Guests will also select from a variety of appetizers. There will be a cash bar with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. No reservation is required, but seating will be first come, first served.

Executive Sushi Chef Toshi Yoshii comes from Japan, where he owned a sushi restaurant for 15 years and is sure to delight patrons of Jugemu with authentic Japanese meals.

The restaurant will seat approximately 45, including a private room, and is open for dinner six days a week (closed Mondays) from 4:30 pm till 9:30 pm. Delivery and pickup options will be available.
